Sorry about that. Apparently when I was playing around with the themes the discussion settings got changed, and WordPress automagically closed comments on all posts/pages over 90 days old. Well, I’ve reopened them, so have at it!
Trying out a new theme. Please bear with me until I get some of the bugs worked out.
Update: This is it. What do you think?
I’ve added several new links to the 2012 hoax page, including several good articles about 2012 I found, and an update to the ‘Planet X/Nibiru/Wormwood’ section describing why recent papers severely limit the possible size and orbit of any large object beyond Neptune.
Two of my online friends, Tavi Anne Greiner and Rob Keown, have started a new blog (new as of March 2009) called A Sky Full of Stars. Knowing them (as little as I do) I would expect to see some insightful, inspirational, and thoughtful posts, as well as some beautiful pictures.
Best of luck with the blog, guys! Keep looking up!
My appeal of a fraudulent removal of a post from Yahoo!Answers Astronomy & Space has been approved, and the post has been restored. Unfortunately Y!A does not tell me who reported my post as inappropriate. However, Y!A assures me (with ponderous gravity) that the person who flagged my post has ‘lost influence’.
Yippie skippie. Color me “unimpressed”.
One of the other frequent aswerers there told me that a group of sock-puppets targeted his account one night and reported 6 posts within 45 minutes, causing his account to be disabled. I’ve now had to restrict access to my Y!A profile so that people can’t simply browse through my answers and flag them.
Once again, the 2012 proponents are showing their true colors. It’s not ok to disagree with them. If you do, you will be targeted.
In honor of the new campaign of censorship attempts by 2012ers on Yahoo!Answers Astronomy & Space, I’m now forming the ENC, or “Evil NASA Conspiracy”. This is a blatant rip-off of the “EAC” (We do not exist), but what the heck.
I think our slogan will be “In space, nobody can hear you scheme!”. Our goals will be simple: the suppression of any evidence of Planet-X/Nibiru. We should be very successful in this, since the object does not exist.
See? It’s working already! I’ll have to work on my funding proposal to NASA.
As you may now (especially if you look over to the links on the left) I participate in the “Astronomy & Space” category on Yahoo! Answers. For several weeks now, participants in that forum have been dogged by what I’m calling ‘thumb-bots’.
In Y!Answers, the community can give ‘thumbs up’ or ‘thumbs down’ to answers, basically giving their view on the quality and validity of the answer. However, this has recently become more of a war zone than a community vote. On any answer dealing with 2012, Nibiru, Planet X, or the Mayan Calendar ( see my 2012 page here ), any answer that is given from a scientific perspective is immediately hit with multiple ‘thumbs down’ votes… sometimes within a few minutes. That hasn’t bothered me so much. I see it as an indication that my answers are hitting home, and from the feedback I’m getting from the people asking the questions, I’d say I am right.
However, a new trend has emerged. Besides allowing the ‘thumbs up’ and ‘thumbs down’ votes, Yahoo!Answers also allows the community to ‘Report Abuse’, which is anything that violates the community guidelines. Now, this feature is being abused by the 2012 hoaxers to remove answers which they don’t like.
In the past few days, several members have had answers removed, answers which do not violate the guidelines. Appealing an answer can cost you points (no big deal) but having lots of abuse reports against you can cause Yahoo!Answers to remove your account.
So here the true colors of the 2012 hoaxers come out. It’s not OK to disagree with them, and if you do, they’re going to try and run you off.
Sorry guys, I’m here for the duration. I’ll see you on 12/22/2012.
